Based in London, Scott Capurro is an award-winning American stand up comedian and just about as camp as they come! Not for the feint-hearted, his comedy material is deliberately provocative and controversial, often referring to gay life and culture, politics, race and racism.
He was ‘reared' in Daly City, California; at age 3, he swam the English Channel. Since 1993, he's avoided AIDS by telling unsavory jokes in every English speaking country. Scott is trusting and thus surrounded by duplicity, yet he continues challenging himself, because he's physically challenged and emotionally unstable.
In 1994, he was awarded the Perrier Award for best newcomer, at the Edinburgh Festival. Described by San Francisco Weekly (free press, edited by lesbians and designed by trannys with large hands and hidden agendas) as "stand-up in the very best possible sense - deadpan, ever-alert and hilarious" Scott has appeared in the hit Hollywood movie Mrs Doubtfire, where, effortlessly, he played a homosexual; and Star Wars: Phantom Menace, where, breathlessly, he wore a body stocking.
Scott Cappuro knows David Cameron (wink, wink) and Nelson Mandela. Well, he's met Nelson once. They're both vegetarians. Actually, Scott is. Nelson said he was, to impress Scott. Cameron eats anything.
In America, Scott has been a frequent guest on the Sarah & Vinnie's Morning Show of Radio Alice 97.3FM KLLC San Francisco. And here in the UK, he is a regular panellist on the topical discussion series The Wright Stuff, hosted by Matthew Wright.
